Holman Correctional Facility

William C. Holman Correctional Facility is an Alabama Department of Corrections prison located in unincorporated southwestern Escambia County, Alabama.[1][2] The facility is along Alabama State Highway 21, 9 miles (14 km) north of Atmore in southern Alabama.[2] The facility was built to house 581 inmates. Holman now holds more than a thousand prisoners.[3] It has 632 general population beds, 200 single cells, and 170 death row cells, for a capacity of 1002 maximum through minimum-custody inmates, including a large contingent of life without parole inmates. The death chamber is located at Holman, where all state executions are conducted. Holman also operates two major correctional industries within the facility's perimeter: a license plate plant and a sewing factory.[1] Holman Correctional Facility was the subject of a documentary on MSNBC entitled Lockup: Holman Extended Stay (2006).[4] The warden at Holman Correctional Facility was Grantt Culliver, who served from 2002 - 2009.[5] The current warden is Cynthia Stewart.[1] In 2016 the prison had the reputation of being the most violent in the country, due to overcrowding and understaffing. That year the Department of Justice initiated an investigation at the prison into conditions for both prisoners and officers.
